Andy Bencosme, Managing Broker of CENTURY 21 Village in Sierra Madre recently announced that this month marks the twenty fifth year that his office has been serving Sierra Madre and surrounding communities. Another CENTURY 21 company owned the business for the first six years and then it was purchased by Michael and Marge Ludecke in 1986.

The name changed to CENTURY 21 Village Realty and began its first business day with six agents in about 750 square feet. Over the years as the company prospered, more space was acquired in Renaissance Plaza and more agents were hired. Today C21 Village occupies over 2500 square feet and employs over thirty sales associates.
To celebrate the event, Bencosme hosted a Sierra Madre Chamber of Commerce mixer complete with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Many dignitaries from the County, State and City government as well as the Chamber Board of Directors and local business owners were in attendance. Village provided all the beverages, and the delicious food was provided by Café 322 located here in Sierra Madre.
Bencosme is very proud of the Sierra Madre company and that the office has received many prestigious awards for quality service and has been voted “Best of the Best” real estate office several years by readers of the local newspaper. He said that he is looking forward to serving the community for the next twenty-five years.
